Weekly Interval #15: Descending minor 3rd

Posted on: January 13th, 2011 by dville

This week’s guest on the Weekly Interval is the descending minor 3nd. This interval should be really familiar if you are a Beatles fan. They used it to start one of their most popular melodies, Hey, Jude. Play the interval on your instrument. Listen to it. Spend a week with this interval, play it in different keys, different areas of the neck and listen for the melodies of familiar songs to jump out as you practice listening to the descending minor 3nd. If you do hear the melody to a song that starts with this interval other than those listed below post it in the comments section.


Key of C: Octave C to A
Solfege Syllables: Do-La (pronounced Doe-Lah)
1th string, 3rd fret to 1st string open
First two votes of (not necessarily C to A) :
Hey, Jude
Misty
Frosty The Snowman

One Response

  1. Not the start of the song, but it’s the interval that repeats four times in the line “Someday I’ll wish upon a star” in Somewhere Over The Rainbow.
